Well, like they say with lasers : "Never look into the beam with your remaining good eye..."

Britt,

make sure that you re lubricate everything in that dizzy or you will have problems later.

I made that mistake once of cleaning it with carb cleaner...
after that the car kept dying suddenly and leaving me.
found that I forgot to relubricate the points blocks and lost the point gap in a couple hundred miles.

don't re-use that dizzy without fully re-lubricating the shaft and the points (with distributor points conductive grease)

brant

did that, thanks for the tip.

I too forgot about the distributor grease the first time and I got stranded on a major interstate...

i oiled everything with 10W-30 oil, and put some in the shaft too...
